Pulaski school desegregation suit ends for Little Rock and North Little Rock

Posted By on Thu, Aug 21, 2014 at 2:55 PM

Fox 16 reports on a federal judge's formal order today ending the Pulaski County school desegregation case as to the Little Rock and North Little Rock School Districts.  The court retains supervision of the Pulaski County School Distirct, with some desegregation goals still to achieve. And it will monitor the expected creation of a new school district at Jacksonville to be carved from Pulaski County.

The end of three decades of litigation will bring an end to $70 million a year in state payments by 2018.
